The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the left side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the kangaroo's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: On the right side, draw a bigger circle the same way as a guide for the back section of the kangaroo's body. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. This circle should be more than twice the size of the first circle. Don't space the circles too far apart.
Step 3: On the left side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the kangaroo's head. This circle should be smaller than the first circle. The three circles should be pretty close together.
Step 4: On the lower, left side of the kangaroo's head, draw a small arc as a guide for the muzzle.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw a smaller, thinner arc as a guide for the kangaroo's ears.
